I was at Big 4 consulting for a year before lateraling to ACN recently. It’s been about 6 months at ACN. Now I have an industry offer for Product Manager, which has been my eventual goal. Would it be too soon to jump? Or should I stick around for better exits in a couple of years may be? I’m worried the frequent changes won’t look good on my resume 4 YOE overall, TC at Product Manager is about 20-25k > ACN.

If you want to be a PM then send it. PM’ing is the hottest role in the market and it’s a competitive spot to be in, so again… if you like it then go.

Sorry unrelated but can I DM? And yes I would jump if the comp is right and you can see yourself at the new company for a few years at least to make up for it

If you had been at B4 for 2 years then maybe but 1 year at B4 and 6 months at Accenture looks bad

Obviously not if he already got an offer for a PM role.

If PM is the eventual goal why does the tenure at Accenture even matter? Did it matter when you got the offer? No it didn’t.You wouldn’t be gaining any extra ordinary experience by staying at Accenture as compared to the PM role. The PM role exp would actually be more inline with what you want and the experienced gained would be more focused. This shouldn’t even be a question...

Separate q but what experience do you have at big 4 and ACN? Curious to know what project roles have helped you to pivot to PM

Implementation consulting, functional leads, project managing, releasing managing etc etc

The whole job hopping thing will self correct. You’ll get offers until you don’t lol. It’s clearly not too early to leave if you got an offer. Would take it

What’s wrong with being a top candidate and offered a good package? You’re in demand. You’re offered a position you can’t refuse. That’s all.

Why exactly does a PM do?

Do it man. 10YOE, I wish I was in your position. Extra YOE at Accenture or a consultancy will likely decrease, rather than increase, your chances of moving into PM as your future consulting salary may exceed what you'll be offered for your first PM role and you'll never make the move.
